The case for and against the Falcons re-signing Leon McFadden

I promised you we would look at the case for and against every looming Falcons free agent, so here we are, talking about Leon McFadden. You may remember McFadden from the moment he was signed, when the Falcons fanbase collectively squinted, scratched their heads, and wondered aloud who Leon McFadden was.

With that in mind, let’s look at whether he might come back!


The Falcons could really use additional depth at cornerback!


Leon McFadden played zero snaps for the Falcons last year, despite being on the roster. Leon McFadden has not played ten games in an NFL season since 2013, has just two career starts, and has never intercepted a pass.

The Verdict: No

Leon McFadden probably isn’t re-signing in Atlanta unless every other cornerback on the free agent market and in the draft disappears, en masse, into another dimension. We wish him well wherever he goes.
